One of the outpatient rehab alternatives for individuals in Holt who are struggling with opioid dependence and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed centers and doctors are certified to administer specific meds to opioid dependent clients, many of which are opioids also and are addiction. With low enough amounts the individual does not experience being high and also doesn't experience acute cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are other options to select from.
Methadone is an opioid and can be taken at an out-patient clinic licensed to dispense the drug, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The cost of the drug is about $150 monthly. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based drug, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But different from Methadone that can only be administered in highly structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is about $300 /month for the generic of the medication. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, which is a med that blocks the effects of opiates. An individual taking this formulation, also known as Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and costs about $450 /month. Naltrexone is another medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned it is an opioid blocker and is not an opiate. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents an individual from experience high feelings from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 a month.
